can I have the parcels on NFS instead of remote URL?

Explorer

hi

can I have the parcels located on an FS so the installation will include a copy instead of downloading from a remote URL?

I believe it will be faster solution

this is for testing cluster environments

better still - can I copy the parcels to the /opt/cloudera/parcels myself - while I'm preparing the VM - will cdp know that the file is already there or do I need to update also the psql metadata db?

thanks

doron

CM uses BitTorrent to distrubte parcels so it's already very efficient.

 

My recommendation would be to let CM do the work and not bother with trying to save yourself a few minutes.
